-- rubio gave the government response to the speech. >> more government isn't going to help you get ahead. it's going to hold you back. more government isn't going to create more opportunities. it's going to limit them. and more government isn't going to inspire more ideas, new businesses and new private sector jobs. going to create uncertainty. john: house republican leader john boehner sat behind the president during the speech and did not stir a muscle in any way that might be mistaken for approving of the president's ideas. this was the reaction from mr. boehner the next day. last night, the president offered up more of the same -- higher taxes and more stimulus spending and we're weeks away from the president's sequester and the president laid out no plan to eliminate the sequester and the harmful cuts that will come as a result of it. john: eamon, any of the things the president talked about going to pass? >> i think he's got a fight on his hands. republicans, as you saw, just from the body language of speaker boehner sitting behind the president, republicans are not in a mood to of

in america? that is the difference between the parties. rubio, if you look at the transcript -- i will not speak about the delivery. it was hot in there and he was obviously thursday. [laughter] the transcript was an excellent explanation of the conservative argument that what is coming america is a sclerotic, obsolete hanging onto every regulation, every increase in taxation, i thought he did it well. the problem is, he should have done it in a studio somewhere well-prepared. >> colby? >> it was a "saturday night live" skit. he is going to go the way of paul ryan, these youthful looking guys who are boyish, and then they spew out that same conservative pablum that got them in trouble. >> he is talking about immigration -- >> but he didn't in that speech. >> according to "time" magazine, he got a voice now from his mother who said, "don't mess with the immigrants. they came here for the same reasons." >> that was a great anecdote and nice touch, and i hope he listens to his mother more often. the speech can be boiled down to this -- i am not mitt romney. i was not born of privileg

you even go forward with some of these ideas. >> rose: the republican message came from marco rubio the senator from florida. here's a sample of that. >> president's in both parties from john f. kennedy to recalled reagan have known our free enterprise economy is the source of our middle class prosperity. but problem, he believes it's the cause of our problems. but the economic downturn happened because our government didn't tax enough, spend enough or control enough. and therefore as you heard tonight, his solution to virtually every problem we face is for washington to tax more, borrow more and spend more. >> rose: i'll talk about the political implications of marco rubio but what do you think of what he said and his presentation and the strength that he seems to be gaining by being a significant republican voice. >> i think it's important he's trying to say we don't have to be an exclusive party, we can be a party that brings other people in. but there was a very very clear ideological divide between what he said and the president said. which is that the president believes and h

't that great? but it is not going anywhere. >>> republican senator marco rubio responds to president obama. >> the tax increases and the deficit spending you propose will hurt middle class families. it will cost them their raises cost them their benefits, it may even cost some of them jobs. and it will hurt seniors because it does nothing to help save medicare and social security. hardworking middle class americans who don't need us to come up with a plan to grow the government, they need a plan to grow the middle class. >> question, was rubio for the gop? tim? >> he moved in the right direction. i don't think it was a great response. he moved in the right direction because you heard when he was criticizing government he wasn't saying oh it is taking p money from hardworking people and giving it to the p undeserving, he was saying government is keeping you down. government regulations are making it harder for someone to start a new business, you or the person who might hire you. government breeding dependency and keeping the regular person down. i thought rhetoric. >> why was he chosen? >>

the junior senator from the state of florida, marco rubio. so, we will be looking for that. >> the president spoke about learning english. and as a precondition to citizenship. marco rubio one of the reasons he was chosen is that he is totally, perfectly bilingual and will deliver the speech in both english and spanish. >> woodruff: he'll go back and forth >> i think he's already done it in spanish. >> woodruff: and they'll be broadcasting it. but he's of course the son of cuban emigres. >> and demate coras have been doing this for a long time. i mean and toneeville rogue owes a did. they combined one republican. >> woodruff: we're listen to go the house speaker saying the house will come to order. we see the president just about to exit the door wanting to shake every single hand. i remember when president clinton was in office, reaching three and four and five rows back to make sure he didn't miss a single hand. on his way out the door. >> and the pages. they line up back there. >> woodruff: we will wait a few minutes before we hear from senator rubio. let's go back and talk about what the

gain from it, he gave marco rubio's talking points in the speech. gave republicans a lot of cover, he cass strong on enforcement so this tone was significantly different than the inaugural. >> so speak of marco rubio, he came after, in fact, there were two republican responses, senator rubio and rand paul gave the tea party response. did the-- often the response, the republican or the other part response doesn't get a lot of attention. was this one different. did it have an impact. >> there was more curiosity because of marco rubio and i think the speech could be boiled down to i am not mitt romney. i was not born to privilege, power, affluence or influence. i come from very humble origins. and this is who i am. and these are my values. i didn't think it wag dr -- was -- -- i think he is a very strong speaker and probably a very good messenger. i thought it wag eye very-- was a very pedestrian message. >> woodruff: remembered for leaning over to get a drink. >> to me, the way he recouped that, that is how the speech will be remembered, is darting for the pole in spring and the fact he

think his plans will come to nought and most want to oppose him. marco rubio was uncompromising but wants to change his party's image. >> i still live in the same working-class neighborhood. they are workers who have to get up early tomorrow morning to pay the bills. >> the president must make some republicans see compromise as a central part of that. >> it has been described as an aggressive state of the agenda. >> very few ideas were actually knew. i think what made it seem so aggressive is the president's declaration he was no longer going to allow a single-minded focus on the deficit to drive everything else. the deficit will become one of a number of concerns. he was going to say he is no longer going to have these arguments. >> i think it is right if you polled americans individually on things like more education for young children, investment in roads and bridges, immigration reform, americans would say they do support those things. >> they do support a particular, but at the same time they will tell you they are worried about excessive spending. that is one of the proble

's moving in the right direction? >> i think they're making progress. i'm a big fan of marco rubio, for example. i think he's worked it aggressively. >> rose: a pathway to citizenship. >> i think that's basically where we're headed. you've got to have some kind of ultimate resolution and i'm not an expert in the subject but i think clearly we've got over 11 million illegals here and i think the ideas that we need to find ways to come to grips that with problem and pass legislation are sound so i'm more inclined to look at somebody like rubio and the work he's done as being something that we need to -- >> rose: it's something your administration wanted very much. the president cited it as one of his second-term goals. >> the president was very big on it. he had 44% of the latino vote in texas. >> rose: so what's happened to your party? >> i think the issue was probably badly handled during the last election. i think that contributed to it. >> rose: because of the competitiveness of the primary? >> partly. i think in part because one of the explanations -- i can't speak with authorit

come first. even marco rubio of florida-- a member of the bipartisan group of eight-- said this in the republican response to the president last night. >> we can also help grow our... grow our economy if we have a legal immigration system that allows us to attract and assimilate the world's best and brightest. we need a responsible permanent solution to the problem of those who are here illegally. but first, we must follow through on the broken promises of the past to secure our borders and enforce our laws. >> warner: that history was never far away at today's hearing, for many republicans, including texas senator john cornyn. senator chuck grassley of iowa is the committee's ranking republican. >> this is like deja vu for a lot of us. but i believe that the reason immigration reform failed in 2007 is because the american people don't actually believe congress intends to follow through on important measures like border security, worksite enforcement, visa overstays, and the like. >> warner: napolitano told cornyn that the obama administration has done much to stem illegal
